1st trip to Ireland Itinerary help/suggestions

Jump to last reply

Hello, my husband and I (who are in our 50's), are planning a trip to Ireland in September. We would like a good mix in our holiday, with some 'must see' tourist places, to some 'off the beaten track places', more smaller towns than the bigger ones, would like to stay mostly at B&B's, with perhaps a one night splurge (not too much of a splurge tho.... :D ) at a castle. Is it recommended to see the Dingle Peninsula, the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher? From what I've been reading, I'm getting a feeling that the Dingle Peninsula is one that is preferred?

Here is my 1st attempt at a route.....I seem to have a bit of extra time and I'm not sure what to do with it.

Any suggestions and/or comments would be greatly appreciated as I feel I'm already feeling overwhelmed! (but excited) :)

Saturday, Sept 10th - arrive in Dublin (from Ontario, Canada) at 10:40 am - stay in Dublin
Sunday, Sept 11th - stay in Dublin
Monday, Sept 12th - would like to see the Rock of Cashel, so, stay in that area - would like some recommended suggestions. I was wondering if driving through Glendalough and area on the way is feasible?
Tuesday, Sept 13th - Drive to Cork, either stay there or in Kinsale?
Wednesday, Sept 14th - Stay another night in the Cork area
Thursday, Sept 15th - Drive and stay in either Kenmare or Dingle?
Friday, Sept 16th - Stay another night in the same area
Saturday, Sept 17th - Drive to Ennis and stay 1 night
Sunday, Sept 18th - Drive to Galway
Monday, Sept 19th - Stay another night in Galway
Tuesday, Sept 20th - ?
Wednesday, Sept 21st - Drive (or perhaps take the train if possible) back to Dublin
Thursday, Sept 22nd - leave for home, 12:10

We are definately open to ANY suggestions, for instance, if one feels we should stay in a different town over another. Alter the route in any way that's more beneficial. Where should we throw that extra day?

We appreciate your time and input, thank you ever so much.......

Judy
